    Chris Gibbons - The Father of Economic Gardening

    in Entrepreneur


    This week’s program will feature Christian Gibbons, Director of Business/Industry Affairs in Littleton, Colorado and co-inventor (along with city manager Jim Woods) of “Economic Gardening,” an entrepreneurial approach to economic development. Mr. Gibbons has run this project for the City of Littleton for 24 years. From the period 1990 to 2009 the number of jobs in Littleton nearly doubled from 15,000 to 30,000 and sales tax revenues more than tripled from $6 to $21 million. The City did not recruit one industry during this period, nor did it offer one cent in incentives or tax rebates.


    Mr. Gibbons received a Master’s Degree in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Oklahoma in 1973 and worked for the City of Oklahoma City and San Bernardino County, California before establishing his own consulting firm in 1977. From 1977 to 1987 he consulted on a variety of community and economic development projects in Colorado, Wyoming and California. Mr. Gibbons has been married to his wife Diane for 42 years and they have two adult sons.

    Learn about Straw Bale Gardening with My Guest, Author Joel Karnsten

    in Prepping

    I had the honor of interviewing Joel and leaving tremendously encouraged about this method of gardening. As I think and prepare for my elderly years, gardening is not something I am willing to give up simply due to physical limitations and straw bale gardening sounds just like the ticket to keep at it! It is not only for the 'seasoned' gardener, as Joel puts it, but it is great for so many other circumstances and living environments.


    He is going to be one of the speakers you can learn from FOR FREE at the Home Grown Food Summit! (bit.ly/HomeGrownFoodSummit) But you'll want to register SOON . You'll see several people with whom you are likely familiar.

    The Three Year Economic Program: Collective Power Through Buying Land

    in Women

    We have everything we need to create a thriving economy and employment. The challenge is, everybody, or at least a significant percentage of the population, must willingly participate in a collective economic program that enables us to put our money together and buy land. The Nation of Islam has a proven track record of organizing the collective resources of a group and manifesting successful business operations. Can the organization once again create economic success within e inner city community, despite the proliferation of drugs and guns? Can the Nation of Islam redirect the attitudes of Generation X and the "me" generation that has been indoctrinated with a philosophy of selfish materialism and an absence of a sense of community? How does one relearn how to operate within a collective? How many people will it take to make this three year economic program successful. Today's guest breaks down the mathematical figures, the cost projections, potential profits, and what this represents in terms of numbers of people who must participate in order to fulfill the vision and succeed on a national scale. Our guest is Dr Ridgley Abdul Mu'min Muhammad. Later we'll be joined by Andre Joseph, author of How to Be Successful, The 17 Laws.
